Configure Azure route tables to use a NetFoundry gateway for egress to Azure Virtual WAN

Azure route tables allow you to specify network routes so that the NetFoundry Gateway will pass traffic from your Branch Virtual Network to the Azure Virtual WAN. In order for network interfaces to do this, routes must be specified and  IP forwarding must be enabled in Azure. IP forwarding has already been enabled on your pre-built NetFoundry image. When multiple routes are present for a given destination, the more specific route is utilized.
